North Texas boot camp helps entrepreneurs start a corporation

The University of North Texas’ Murphy Center for Entrepreneurship is hosting its first entrepreneurial boot camp to help local residents take the first steps in forming an LLC.

The month-long camp – which is currently underway, and will come to an end on August 18 – will help 10 students in its inaugural class. The school said it had so much interest, it actually had to turn away several applicants from its first class.

Each of the entrepreneurs will work with industry experts and business graduate students to create a business plan, gain real-world experience and pitch their business ideas to investors.

“UNT is very interested in preparing our students for careers that are ever-changing and dynamic,” Tony Mendes, director of the Murphy Center, told the Denton Record-Chronicle. “The competition is global, but the other side is, the opportunities are also global.”

Each of the boot camp’s first participants are also getting a helping hand from the community. The school’s website says that an anonymous alumnus is underwriting the program’s fees to help give them a head start.ADNFCR-3052-ID-19907988-ADNFCR
